Patch coconut oil plasters are engineered for the future eco warriors of our planet, our kids. This is a plastic free and zero waste product.
This range is made from 100% organic bamboo fibre, enriched with coconut oil in the gauze to help soothe minor abrasions and provide long lasting support for sensitive skin. Let’s not forget the cute panda print, designed to comfort children in life’s little emergencies.
How do these plasters degrade?
The bandage and gauze is made from 100% certified bamboo fibre which will break down and compost. The is also gauze is made from 100% organic bamboo fibre.
The adhesive on the plaster has been created with 100% biodegradable and hypoallergenic ‘pressure sensitive adhesive’ ingredients. These ingredients are from nature and are suitable for the most sensitive skin types, but also great on regular skin types too.
The back paper that protects the plaster until you use it is paper which will also break down in compost. The tube that the plaster are packaged in is made from recycled cardboard and can also be composted. It could also easily be reused or recycled rather than composted.
The outer cover of the bandages is currently supplied as biodegradable plastic, the thinnest possible. It is used as a protective sterilisation layer for the strips, however, for the next round of production PATCH do this is being replaced to be completely compostable.
